Maintenance Contract Price Figures Announcement Date: 27 May 2019

The information on average monthly lift maintenance price at private commercial premises Note 1, classified according to the lift travel level Note 2 and lift speed, are shown for reference by the general public.

Following the recommendations of the Lift and Escalator Safety Advisory Committee, the EMSD has released the maintenance price information on the lifts in private commercial premises for public reference since May 2015. The sharing of price information aims at facilitating responsible persons of lifts ("RPs") to choose among registered lift contractors for provision of lift maintenance services through provision of related price information as reference. EMSD will update the information on a half-yearly basis.

As regards whether maintenance prices quoted by a registered contractor are reasonable, RPs should consider if the maintenance price is commensurate with the services specified in the maintenance contract. If in doubt, RP may ask the registered lift contractor for relevant information regarding the calculation of maintenance price, e.g. the fee for each service item covered by the maintenance contract for further consideration.

Past Maintenance Contract Price Figures for Lifts at Private Commercial Premises (please click here)

The above data refers only to those lifts with a comprehensive maintenance coverage (i.e. inclusive of the cost of replacement parts due to wear and tear). The monthly maintenance price under non-comprehensive maintenance contract is lower as the price does not include the cost of parts replacements due to wear and tear. As such the maintenance price of such contract cannot reflect the actual average total monthly maintenance price of the lift.

Note 1

Private commercial premises refer to office buildings, shopping arcades, hotels and guest houses, but not include industrial buildings.

Note 2

Lift travel level refers to the actual number of the floor travelled by the lift from the lowest landing to the top floor landing, with the lowest landing floor excluded. If there is no 4/F, 13/F, 14/F etc. in a building, these floors should be excluded in counting the lift travel level. Also, if the lift serves the UG/1, UG/2 etc., these floors should be counted in the lift travel level.
